My Grandad

O Meu Avô

Catarina Sobral

Orfeu Negro | 2nd edition June 2014 | 40 pages | 19 x 19 cm | hardcover

My grandad used to have a clock shop. Now he has a lot of free time. Mr. Wright is not a watchmaker (though he always has one eye on the time) and he never wastes a minute.

A small format book on modern times, sprinkled generously with artistic references from Jacques Tati, the French director, to Fernando Pessoa, the Portuguese poet.
